When should I request my transcripts be sent to my transfer school?
Students are responsible for ensuring that all necessary information is available on their transcript when ordering. Credentials Solutions offers the option to hold transcript orders until final grades or conferred degrees have been applied to the student’s academic record.
Students needing either their final semester grades or conferred degree from OTC can also utilize the Student Academic Calendar for transcript posting dates.
It is always recommended that you speak with an admissions counselor at your transfer school to determine if your transfer institution recommends that you also submit a copy of your incomplete official transcripts.
How can I verify what information will be included on my transcript and sent to my recipient?
The simplest way to see the transcript that your recipient will receive is to view your unofficial transcript. Your unofficial transcript will display the same information that is generated on your official transcript in real time.
Current students may view their unofficial college transcript through their myOTC portal. Please see the ‘Unofficial Transcript’ section above for more information.
Students are also encouraged to check the Student Academic Calendar to ensure that they are not ordering their transcripts before final grades and conferred degrees have posted each semester.
Why are my final grades or conferred degree missing from the transcript I ordered?
Final grades and conferred degrees are available by a specified date at the end of each semester. If you ordered your transcript prior to those dates, some or all of the information could be missing.
Students are encouraged to check the Student Academic Calendar each semester for final grades and degree posting dates to ensure that the desired information has been posted to their transcript before being sent to their recipient school.
If you find that you have ordered your transcript earlier than the posting dates, please place a new transcript order.
